Now, our first lady has already won over so many hearts since being inaugurated by her husband's side in January...

But where did this love story begin?

The president first crossed paths with the then Jill Stevenson in March 1975.

Of course, Joe had just endured the most horrific of grievances a few years earlier after his wife and college sweetheart, Neilia, had been killed when a tractor-trailer crashed into the station wagon she was driving with their 3 children.

Daughter Naomi, 1, was also killed, while sons Beau, 4, and Hunter, 3, were badly injured and would be in the hospital for months.

At thirty, he became a single parent to his sons, taking the train home from Washington to Wilmington every night as he worked as the senator of Delaware.

So when he was set up on a blind date with Jill by his brother, he was given a new lease of life.

The couple became serious very quickly, with Jill taking Joe's sons under her wing right away.

"When Joe worked late, I would go over to make dinner and keep them company," she wrote in her memoir, Where the Light Enters, as excerpted in TIME.

"I would help pick them up from school sometimes, or we'd pass an evening watching TV. We started to build our own relationship separate from their dad."

And in 1997, Joe popped the question...

And the couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony... with them even taking the boys on their honeymoon!

A few years later in 1981, they welcomed their daughter, Ashley, into the world...

And there was absolutely no doubt that Jill was slowly starting to mend Joe's broken heart.

But alongside being the supportive wife of a political figure and the mother of 3 children, Jill was embarking on her own career.

She received her Masters of Education degree from West Chester University in 1981, and after taking several years off following the birth of her daughter, she returned to teaching English while also pursuing a Master of Arts in English from Villanova University.

Also in 1987, Joe - who had been serving as a senator for almost 2 decades - announced his intention to seek the Democratic nomination for the 1988 presidential race.

Although the bid wasn't successful, Jill campaigned actively by his side and supported her husband through the turbulent years to come.

Several months later, Joe underwent surgery to repair a brain aneurysm and during his recovery, he suffered a pulmonary embolism.

Speaking of this difficult period in her book, Jill said her tendency to be the stoic one (in contrast to Joe's more open, affectionate manner) served her well during this difficult time for their family.

"When Joe's first presidential campaign started to look bleak, people were constantly looking for cracks in our team... I refused to show weakness. I [was] always fighting to keep control of myself, especially in times of hardship and adversity. [Our kids] never saw me cry when Joe was lying near death at Walter Reed hospital after his 2 aneurysms in 1988, or when EMTs carried him down the steps of our house on a stretcher after he had a pulmonary embolism that same year."

Thankfully, Joe went on to make a full recovery and was soon back at home with his family...

And the Bidens continued to pursue their individual careers, with Joe moving up the ranks in the senate while Jill continued to teach.

A year later, Joe was announced as the vice-presidential nominee on Barack Obama's ticket; making Jill the second lady of the United States.

But in 2015, tragedy struck for the Bidens once again.

Joe's son, Beau, died of brain cancer at the age of forty-five, just 2 years after his first diagnosis.

"It was totally shattering," Jill said in an interview. "My life changed in an instant. All during his illness, I truly believed that he was going to live, up until the moment that he closed his eyes, and I just never gave up hope."

Together they rallied around their family and faith, and the entire Biden family emerged stronger and more bonded than ever.

"Family comes first. Over everything," son Hunter said of his father's guiding principle, in an interview after Beau's death.

"I can't think of anything that has been more pervasive and played a larger part in my life than that simple lesson. He didn't have to teach it by saying it. It was just in his actions."

As time passed and the Bidens healed from their grief, Joe decided to pursue presidency once again in 2020.

He went up against the notorious Donald Trump who was trying his very best to knock Biden down by playing dirty - including mentioning and disrespecting the late Beau - but it was all to little avail.

Joe victoriously won the 2020 election...

And although the former president was angrily insisting that the election was a fix and that he was the real winner, the votes didn't lie and Joe Biden was set to be the forty-sixth president of the United States.

Joe was inaugurated as president on January 20th, alongside Vice President Kamala Harris...

Making Jill the first lady of our country.

And amazingly so, Jill has actually made history...

Getty

Because she is the only first lady in history to continue working independently alongside her duties in office.

And to make things even better, Joe is still just as in love with her as he was on the day they first met.

Getty

In a CBS interview, Joe said of his wife, "I adore her. I'm gonna sound so stupid — I was saying the other day, when she comes down the steps and I look at her, my heart still skips a beat."

It seems as if Joe's presidency has simply made the bond between him and his wife stronger...

Getty

Because whenever they've been seen in public together, there is nothing but love, affection, and laughter.

And this was certainly proven yesterday on April Fools' Day!

Getty

The first lady decided to have a little bit of fun with her staff and the press on the infamous prank day yesterday and people simply loved it.

The first lady was flying back to Washington, D.C., after a trip from California, where she gave a speech to the United Farm Workers and visited a coronavirus vaccination site in Forty Acres...

And she decided to dress up as and impersonate a flight attendant named "Jasmine" to have a little fun with her staff and the press who were waiting for them to arrive in D.C.

Jill donned a short black wig, a black pants suit, a black face mask – the typical attire of a flight attendant on Executive One Foxtrot, the first lady's plane - and a name badge reading "Jasmine."

Getty

The Daily Mail reporter Emily Goodin reported that the first lady walked through cabins containing staffers, Secret Service agents and her press pool "passing out Dove ice cream bars," only to return 5 minutes later without the wig to reveal her identity.

Reporters and Jill's own staff alike were "totally fooled," according to Goodin...

Getty

And the first lady was apparently very amused by her own prank.

We love a good sense of humor!
